raven eating oranges

an articulate claw, an attentive eye,

busy with some deep business

to do with the breaking into of shells

and the plundering of treasure underneath


there’s a soft laughter in the shaking out

of hackles warm with darkness, yes,

rich findings in this busy-season biome,

all welcome, for the gathering in of wealth


richly enjoying the feast, loving the gratification,

old white-eye never doubts the utter reasonableness

of getting enough – enough of what is well worth

the seeking, the danger, the breaking into.

old white-eye
